Chilli con Carne

  • 500g minced meat (I used beef)
  • 5 tomatoes, blanched, peeled and diced
  • 2 tbs tomato paste
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 can red beans
  • chilli powder to taste

This dish is for my eldest daughter ;)!

  • Heat some olive oil in a saucepan.
  • Add minced meat. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring to break mince until brown. Set aside.
  • Heat 2 tbs olive oil, add onion and garlic, stir, add diced tomatoes.
  • Cook on medium heat until tomatoes are soft. Cover and reduce heat. Add tomato paste. Add some salt. Let simmer for about 15 mins.
  • Add meat, stir, add drained beans. Add chilli powder to taste. Cover and let simmer for 15-20mins. (If it is a bit dry, add some water or stock and bring to the boil before letting simmer.)
Enjoy on hot tortillas or crusty bread :p!
